Ask Airfarewatchdog.com: 'Saving' airline seats is outrageous
Q: I recently paid $10 each for my wife and I to do the early boarding on Southwest. However when we tried to take two seats together, another passenger was apparently holding five seats for his friends (guess he didn't think the other friends should have to pay the $10 fee). What should I have done to avoid causing an uproar that would have gotten us kicked off the plane (assuming I was willing to endure the glares and comments of him and his friends during the flight)?
